On Wednesdays, Elephant’s Child has been putting up a selection of six (or twelve) words which is called “Words for Wednesday”.
She had taken over this meme from Delores, who is gradually retiring from the blogging world.
This month the meme is hosted by Jacqueline who writes at Randomosity.
Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write.
Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image. What we do with those prompts is up to us: a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore...
Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog. I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme.
If you are posting on your own blog - let us know, so that all other participants can come along and applaud.
I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story.
It’s a fun challenge…why not join in?
This week's words are:

I haven't thought of any way to use the photo, and I'm not continuing with last week's story. Not yet, anyway. There is a half written chapter.....
Here is my story:
The Fairy children, those sweet, gentle, dreamers responsible for the creation of butterflies, wildflowers and rainbows, stumbled against each other as they were rudely shoved along the dank, dark passage leading into the Wicked Gnomes city.
Once there, the rough gnomes tried to separate them for individual interrogation, but in a show of solidarity, the children held hands and grouped tightly together to comfort each other.
The King of the Wicked Gnomes rose from his throne and faced the children. His voice thundered as he spoke. "One of you, perhaps more, has been cheeky enough to wreath my city with wildflowers in rainbow colours. I demand this spell be undone immediately! We are fierce and wicked gnomes, we do not have pretties!"
